Queen Latifah and Adam Shankman are reteaming for a third time to remake Steve Martin/Lily Tomlin 1984 comedy “All of Me” for New Line Cinema.
That film’s story centers on a dying heiress (Tomlin) whose soul ends up in the body of a lawyer (Martin). She controls the right side of his body while he controls the left.
The new take would see the movie set in the world of politics, where a female Jesse Jackson-type finds herself in the body of a conservative. Brent Goldberg and David Wagner penned the new take which was initially developed as a Wanda Sykes vehicle.
Latifah is attached to star and will exec produce, while Shankman will produce though is not attached to direct at this time. The pair previously worked together on “Bringing Down the House” and “Hairspray.”
